Many Japanese have birthday parties for their pets. I have made some otaku type friends in Osu, the Nagoyan version of Akihabara in Tokyo, and was invited to a Chinchilla Birthday Party. This was a first for me and I am not sure if the Chinchillas got a lot out of the party but the guests sure had fun.
This is also my 100th post!
This party in turn inspired a similar parties in the future:

This is version “X” of my rap. X is for experimental. A more polished version may follow.
Gairaigo is Japanese for “loan word”. This rap has many Japanese loan words.
See the following link for more on what a gairaigo is:
Eventual lyrics of my rap:
I got a dato at the interneto to have bento.
I was hungry because I only had a toasto.
My dato is shorto but cuto.
She kissed me on the lipo and handed me her coato.
She found a black hair on my hodo and my cuto has blonde hair.
She called me a cheato and a rato and she wants to separato.
I told her the hair was from my peto.
She said if she had a bato I would be in trouble.
I don’t need a taroto to know I am losing my cuto.
I am on the mato.
I don’t know wether to go lefto or righto
My life is in the toileto.
I can’t eat any foodo
I got a testo and worksheeto I got to study but what is the pointo?
I got to geto my little cuto back.
